Church of the Palms

churchfront02Church of the Palms
(A paraphrase by Patty Smith of "The Church of Jesus Christ" by Ann Weems)

Church of the Palms is where a child brings a balloon . . .
is where old women come to dance . . .
is where young men see visions and old men dream dreams . . .
is where the blind see and the deaf hear . . .
is where the lame run and the dying live.
